The course aims at realizing the following student objectives:

* To prepare students for sound knowledge in key areas of computer science and industrial computing.
* To demonstrate a substantial understanding of concepts in key areas of computer science.
* To carry out the required analysis and synthesis involved in computer systems, information systems and computer applications.
* To demonstrate professional competence in developing software and in its design and implementation.
* To develop sound practical skills to enable them to address problems which arise from computer systems and applications.


MCA is a 3 years full time Degree Programme. The students can specialize in various fields in the last year of their course. Students can choose any four of one of the
following subjects in their 5th semester as per the course combinations available in the syllabus.

. Image Processing
. Parallel Programming

As part from these electives, students can also choose one practical elective subject and participate in major project & seminar.

Programmes for computers contain information and detailed instructions that computers must follow in order to perform all of their functions. Professionals with a computer programming degree are needed to write, test, and maintain these detailed commands. Computer programmes range from very simple ones that only take a few hours to write to very complex programs that take more than a year to finish. After the design process is complete and all of the specifications are met, individuals with a computer programming degree convert it into a logical series of instructions and commands that the Computers can follow.

The programmer would then code these instructions into a computer programming language. Computer programmers may also perform duties such as re-writing, updating, repairing, modifying, and expanding computer programs that already exist. After writing or changing a computer program, the programmers must test the programme to ensure that all instructions are correct. If there are errors, the computer programmer must make the appropriate change and then recheck the program until it produces correct information.
